Stellaris 1.3 patch 'Heinlein' will overhaul Space Creatures and Pirates

By - | Views: 6,653
Stellaris 1.3 patch 'Heinlein' is starting to sound more and more exciting! They really are putting in a lot of effort to make the overall game feel more alive and rewarding. This latest post on their new patch sounds fantastic.

Space Creatures always seemed a little odd to me, just randomly moving around without any sense of purpose to them. So it's nice to see them getting a rework.

Space Creatures will now belong to their own particular region of space, you may find boss creatures and possibly even their home. That sounds so much better and far more fleshed out than the current system. It will make exploring space that extra bit more rewarding and satisfying.

As for Pirates, they will also gain their own region of space and a home base they will attack from. So if they annoy you enough you could send your fleet their way and take them out.

See the full update post here.

I am looking forward to starting a new game once this major patch drops, as I got a little worn out by Stellaris in its current form, but these changes plus the others announced sound like what I need from it. Article taken from

Bought Stellaris at release and enjoyed it alot and patches 1.1 and 1.2 added alot. I will probably revisit when this drops. May even get the DLC that is set to be released in conjunction.

Any improvement to the "AI" in this game is welcome because it seems they initially forgot the "I" ;-)
I can't wait trying this patch! :-)

In the other hand, I regret there is so much focus on battles/war. I would have loved to see diplomacy developed, trade, spying to eventually steal alien technologies, etc.

But still I love this game very much and it runs perfectly fine on my old laptop !!!
